Azienda Agricola & Cantina Franzosi: on the one hand the ability of the family to innovate and evolve over time, on the other the attachment and enhancement of the past and the territory.
The company Franzosi has ancient origins, it was in fact created in the ’30s by grandfather Giovanni, passed into the hands of his son Bruno up to the three nephews Paola, Giovanni and Luigi.
Where is located Cantina Franzosi? The winery is located in Puegnago del Garda, in the heart of Valtènesi, on the morainic hills of Lake Garda, in the province of Brescia, renowned for the production of wine and oil.
Years pass, but the passion for the area remains a special feature of Franzosi.
The last generation, represented by the three brothers, has, supported by the experience of Bruno, decided to expand the area of belonging and its characteristics, to discover new markets and to focus on large investments.
From technological innovations to wine production and bottling techniques, to the use of innovative materials, to the commercial side, in Italy and abroad, to sponsor the brand to a wider audience.
We want to push the limits and exploit the potential of the Valtènesi to work on the quality of our wines. Over the years, the best grapes have been selected, healthiest and most mature, to produce great wines.
The real challenge has been to change the way of communication opening up to the world of Web 2.0 and social networking.
The philosophy of Cantina Franzosi is dedicated to its terroir, the wines must be the individual expression of their soil, climate and work in the vineyard. Cantina Franzosi was founded with the aim to recapture the ancient traditions while using the new agricultural and oenological techniques and technologies that have helped to improve the quality of the wine and wine making processes.
Everything starts with a belief: quality is preferred to the quantity. The firm belief that the quality of the wine is created in the vineyard brings uncompromising work, combining tradition and innovation, knowledge and respect for nature.
A great value is dedicated to the terroir of Lake Garda and the wines are an expression of the soil, the climate and the cultivation in the vineyard. We select only the best and healthy grapes, so that the best grapes reach the optimal maturity.
The wines have character and elegance. The climatic conditions and the excellent locations of the Estate allows us to produce fresh and fruity white wines, as well as concentrated and velvety red wines.
And this fact is reflected in the fact that current consumers are becoming ever more careful and aware of the quality of products and raw materials and tend to drink less but better.
Tourism on Lake Garda is an excellent business card, but in order to make our products (white and red wines, Chiaretto, grappa, sparkling wines, oils) known to an ever wider public, we have been taking part in prestigious fairs and events in the national and international panorama for some time now, such as Vinitaly Fair in Verona and ProWein in Dusseldorf.
Since 1965, the year in which the various competitions took place, the Azienda Agricola & Cantina Franzosi has been collecting numerous awards and acknowledgments confirming the value of our products and our efforts.
The winery Franzosi, to promote its wines and oils, also uses a network of qualified partners who are ambassadors of our wines and convey connected values through authenticity, sensitivity and expertise, in many foreign countries such as Germany, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, Finland, to China and Taiwan
